Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
Throughout history, people have invented marvelous things, many of which contribute to life as we know it today. Some of the first inventions included woven cloth, weapons, and baskets. Even very basic mechanical inventions are still important, such as wheels, sails, and clocks. Inventions such as the printing press and the telescope helped further learning and discovery. Engines became popular in the 1800s, and they are used today in cars and jets. Some inventions were useful for entertainment, such as cameras and music players; others, such as the telephone, were important for communication. The most cutting-edge modern inventions are usually in the fields of computer science, space exploration, or bio-engineering. The layout of this book is truly excellent: every invention is explained in a single page spread with drawings, photographs, a timeline, and tidbits of information. The book keeps a good balance between history and science when explaining each invention. A glossary and an index aid readers in finding information quickly. Part of the "Insiders" series.
